I can’t believe I never shared any of the glamour shots of my Nerd Girl Yarns Hitchhiker! It’s such gorgeous yarn that I must rectify that immediately. Behold, this is Nerd Girl Yarns Mutiny in the color The Wise Build Bridges, inspired by Black Panther.
I adore NGY yarns. The colors are beautiful, they’re inspired by and named for clever nerdy themes, and yarn itself is top-notch. Plus it’s made by a small indie dyer who’s a badass chick, so of course I love supporting her.
The pattern is Hitchhiker Beyond by Martina Behm, and I like it better than the original, but that’s just me. This is what I knit for the NGY Hitchhiker KAL during July and August. It creates a longer, narrower shawl than the Hitchhiker, which I find easier to wear. And I also enjoy having the rows get shorter rather longer as I knit! Which Hitchhiker do you prefer?
I might have to try one as I’ve been looking for a scarf that is the shape of the second one:)
You should! They’re so easy to wear.
Well your picture definitely makes me want to try one- so pretty!
That yarn is gorgeous!
I haven’t ever tried either Hitchhiker pattern, but I like the idea of the Beyond version better. I’ll have to give it a look!
That is a lovely shawl. 🙂
